    • advising patients and their relatives about risks of genetic disorders.
    • advises people about screening and explaining results of a screening.
      • Screening can help to identify: if someone is a carrier of a mutated allele, the type of allele hey're carrying, the most effective treatment.
      • If the results of a screening is positive, genetic counselling helps to advise the patient on prevention or treatment.
